Is there a way to change the completion key?

Asked by Noe Nieto on 2011-04-02

Scintilla/WingIDE and OpenOffice trigger autocompletion with "Tab" Key. In scribes it's the "enter" Key. How do I change this behavior?

It's not changeable because the tab key is used for activating other features, such as snippets, and thus will conflict with word completion.

WingIDE does this by including the snippet in the completion list.

Don't know if it's doable in scribes.

My 2 cents.

Closing the question.

I don't see how a completion list would solve conflicts from using the same key to trigger multiple functions.

Noe Nieto (tzicatl) said : #5

They add the sinippet label into the completion list. <tab> can trigger a completion word or a snippet.

Mystilleef (mystilleef) said : #6

Ah, that makes sense now. That might be possible in Scribes. The only thing I don't like about it, from a design perspective, is that I have to couple the word completion system and the snippet system, which are currently two different plugins.

Haven't delved into scribe's code yet. No idea how to help :)
